MYS 19: Building a Superyacht Platform in Abu Dhabi

By Paul Joseph

Surrounded by the idyllic waters of the Arabian Gulf and well equipped with high-end infrastructure, it’s somewhat of a surprise that it has taken Abu Dhabi quite this long to catch up with the world’s major superyacht hubs.

But big plans are now afoot to make Abu Dhabi as desirable a superyacht destination as any of its European counterparts.

We sat down with Saleed Al Daheeri, Senior Manager at Abu Dhabi Department of Culture & Tourism, to find out more.

“Abu Dhabi is a diverse destination where visitors will be able to reach culture, retail, diversity of beaches and so on,” he began. “We have a global diversity where we have desert, beach, entertainment, Ferrari World, YAS Waterpark, Warner Bros, so a lot of entertainment for people to visit.

Mr Al Daheeri also spoke about the latest InDepth magazine which focusses on Abu Dhabi.

“This is a new project that will boost Abu Dhabi’s yacht industry and we thank for helping support us to announce and spread awareness,” he said.
